We're seeking a person to join the Idaho Out of School Network as a STEM Afterschool Expansion VISTA member. Along with ION staff and partners like the STEM Action Center, they will identify key individuals to engage in fully utilizing TMC Labs. This is a full time, 1 year position.
We want to know more about those who are still in the youth fields so that we can explore, define, and elevate this collective workforce and their work. The information from the Power of Us Workforce Survey can also lead to action, informing policy, practice, and further research to better support the workforce. We believe that if we know more, we can do more.
Quality OST programs rely on a stable workforce of skilled professionals. Together, we must design quality jobs and provide supports to develop and sustain the OST workforce. Join this webinar to learn more about NAA's Thriving OST Workforce Initiative and provide input on the new OST Job Design Framework.
